Knowledge From Study

Betty Said:

Should a chess player who studies, keep their knowledge a secret so as to maintain a competitive edge?

We Answered:

Yes, and no.

Are you a GM? I bet others have learned your "secret". It is safe to talk to them.

Vivian Said:

ASVAB Word Knowledge, does many of the words from the study books/online appear on the test?

We Answered:

Theres a chance that none of the words you see on your practice tests will apear on the test. My test was completely different.

William Said:

What is the difference between a thing's name and the knowledge acquired from studying that thing?

We Answered:

the things name is just a name to all the characteristics that make that thing up

the knowledge aquired is the process of that thing

Brad Said:

What is the difference between a thing's name and the knowledge acquired from studying that thing?

We Answered:

Which is more important? That depends on what you want.

If you want to be able to talk about the thing with others, then using an accepted and understood name is essential.

If you want to understand the thing itself, then you'd need to study the thing itself.

In practice, however, neither exists without the other. If you don't understand a thing well enough to distinguish it from other things, then it's not possible to know what you're intending to apply that name to. On the other hand, if you don't have a separate name for the thing, then it's not possible to distinguish the knowledge you have about that thing from the knowledge you have about other things.

Names are (among other things) a tool for organizing knowledge. That makes the name neither more nor less important than the knowledge it organizes -- you can't use the knowledge without some kind of name, and you can't use the name without some kind of knowledge.

Helen Said:

what's the best way to study for the knowledge test to get my permit to drive?

We Answered:

Read the manual again, very slowly. Don't read just to read. Read and try picturing what they are telling you. Imagine yourself in your car and think of what you would do if in the same situation as the book you are reading. Make notes on the things you can't remember. Once you are done, read the manual again, but concentrate on the things you have highlighted and memorize them.
If you got 45 out of 50, it's pretty good, even on an old test.
Right before you go to bed, read the manual again, or at least the parts you didn't know very well. When you wake up in the morning, read it again... and that what has made me an A student in every class. Good luck.

Paul Said:

Where is the hadih where the Prophet (saw) says "Knowledge comes from study"?

We Answered:

i don't know any specific hadiths but here some about gaining knowledge!

i think this one is here

abu Hurairah (RA) narrated, the Messenger of Allah (SAAW) said:

“Indeed! Acquiring knowledge is done through learning.
Indeed! Acquiring knowledge is done through learning.
And anyone who cares about good, it will be to him, and anyone who protects himself from evil, he will be saved from it.”

(Ad-Daraqutni, in Al-Ifrad; Al-Khatib)

Anas (RA) said: the Messenger of Allah (SAAW) said:

“He who leaves his home in order to seek knowledge, he is in Allah’s path
until he returns [to his home].”

Safwan Ibn ‘Assal said: I came to the Prophet (SAAW) while he was reclining
on a red coat [in the mosque] and I said to him:

“O’ Messenger of Allah! I came to seek knowledge.
He said: Welcome knowledge seeker!
Indeed, the angles surround the knowledge seeker with their wings, then they pile on top of each other until they reach the lower heaven out of their love of what he is seeking.”

(Ahmad Ibn Hanbal; At-Tabarani; Ibn Hajar Al-‘Asqalani, Mukhtasar
At-Targhib; Ibn Hajar Al-‘Asqalani, Al-Isabah fi Tamyziz As-Sahabah, article
“Safwan Ibn ‘Assal”)

(At-Tirmidhi, Sunan, An-Nawawi, Riyad As-Salahin)
